Crew Endurance Management System

(CEMS)

A Real World Solution


Slide2 l.jpg

The Issues

  • What is CEMS?

  • Why implement CEMS?

  • What benefit is there?

  • What kind of support is available?


Slide3 l.jpg

Crew Endurance

The ability to maintain performance within safety limits

while enduring job-related physiological, psychological, and environmental challenges.


Slide4 l.jpg

Crew Endurance Management System

A systematic process for

managing the risk factors

that can lead to human error and performance degradation in maritime work environments.

Q:How can Performance Degradation be prevented ?

A:By shifting the Biological Clock…

ONLY through proper

LightManagement

and proper amounts of

uninterrupted sleep.
